Recording the Race for Space Album

Wednesday 24 February, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Suitability: 16+


Seedhead Arts & the NI Science Festival  are delighted to welcome J. Willgoose, Esq, the brains behind Public Service Broadcasting, to the festival for a one-off lecture and Q&A on the making of their cosmic 2015 album ‘The Race for Space'.
Part historical document, part immersive soundscape and part nerd disco, The Race For Space weaves samples of news reels and recordings from the Sputnik and Apollo missions to retell the story of the American and Soviet space race from 1957-1972 across a nine track album.
J. Willgoose, Esq. will join us for a chat about the process of researching the work, sourcing and licensing the material used, and finally creating the album itself.
